Great room and good sleeping. Friendly, helpful, and accommodating hosts. Nice beach. Comfortable pool. My wife, 11 year old daughter, and I stayed for a week in June. Coffee when we needed it in the morning (or afternoon). Wonderful breakfast choices (included) prepared when we were ready - early if we had an excursion, late when we wanted to relax... More

Coffee lovers are always welcome at Mariposa and we know how important it is to have a fresh roasted pot every morning. Bruce and I hope to see you again... More

Just finishing a most wonderful stay at the Mariposa. The owners Bruce and Sharon go above and beyond to make sure you have everything you want and everything you need. The restaurant is such a huge plus - the food is fantastic and reasonably priced too. The views from the rooms, the patios and the restaurant are phenomenal. The property... More

We've made several trips to Placencia, but this was the first to Mariposa. Although we didn't actually stay at the resort we visited for breakfast one morning based on a recommendation. It was excellent. Not only was the food great, but it was accompanied by an awesome view. We sat over the pristine swimming pool that overlooked the white sand... More

Should be #1 on trip advisor... The owners are incredibly friendly, the place is immaculate. The beach and pool are as good as one can find in Placencia and the best part is that they also have a great restaurant that's open all day... We came for lunch and ended up staying two nights as we are overlanding through South... More

The pictures don't give this place justice. The Villa faces the Caribbean(steps away)and are so clean and fresh that you want to lay in bed all day with the 2 large French doors open and listen to the waves.The new pool was so refreshing and private, with tropical drinks from the bar. I chose Mariposa because my Husband and I... More

Altho my husband and I rented a condo in Placencia for our April vacation, we saw the sign for Mariposa while exploring so we decided to check it out. Sharon and her staff are wonderful. The restaurant was wonderful with a great wine list and Sharon was kind enough to give us a tour. Their bedroom suites are very large... More

Hi Sandy - thanks for the review and taking a chance by stopping by to check out the new restaurant in town. It is always a struggle opening up a new business and Placencia is no exception.

I can't say enough about this place! Amazing, relaxing, beautiful private beach! It's extremely well-kept and clean, and it's close to the airport! But beyond the wonderful accommodations, Bruce and Sharon, the owners are fantastic hosts, knowledgeable about the area, and incredibly kind. I had a great stay at The Mariposa and would highly recommend it!
